Shifter replacements
« on: October 22, 2014, 09:49:18 AM »
Hey all. The auto trans shifter in my '84 is DEAD and I need to replace it. I know the Mustang II and Pinto are pretty darn close.

Can anybody confirm this with 100% certainty?

I bought a Mustang II shifter and they look identical.  I haven't installed it yet to verify it though.  The only thing you have to do is swap over the light.

I have not done the swap to the Mustang II shifter yet.  Perhaps Zoro can weigh in as to whether he went ahead and put a Mustang II shifter in his Eagle after he made this post.  Thanks!
